Three must-attend November conferences in Toronto

Toronto entrepreneurs, marketers and other business-types looking to do a little learning and to get in some crucial networking time can look forward to a range of events over the next few weeks. Here are three events not to miss.

StartmeUp Ryerson
Sleeman Breweries may have lost its indie cred when it was bought by Japanese giant Sapporo back in 2006, but there's still no denying that founder John Sleeman remains one of the most recognizable brewery honchos of this generation. A fixture on radio commercials during the last decade, Sleeman will be speaking at this Ryerson sponsored conference on November 15th, taking place at the Ted Rogers School of Management. Tickets are only $5, less than a price of a pint of Sleeman at most local establishments.

TEDxRyersonU
The second annual TEDxRyersonU takes place on November 20th, this time in a new off-campus location at Glenn Gould Studio. Speakers scheduled to appear this year include former Al Jazeera head of strategy Tony Burman, 500PX co-founder Evgeny Tchebotarev and Ryerson President Sheldon Levy. The application deadline to attend has now closed, but as a sponsor of the event we're going to give away five free tickets. All you need to do is email contests [at] blogto [dotcom] explaining why we should give one of the tickets to you. The contest deadline is 11:59PM this Thursday (November 10th) and we'll be notifying winners the next day (Friday). Good luck!

Mesh Marketing
The Mesh folks are back with a mini-conference they're calling Mesh Marketing. Unlike their annual, two day Mesh Conference that takes place in May, Mesh Marketing is a one day affair (November 15th) where attendees can discuss and debate the future or marketing. If you're looking for an accompanying drinking game, bring a flask and have a swig whenever someone mentions Twitter. The line-up of speakers includes Klout's Joe Fernandez, PR guru Steve Rubel and Score Mobile's Benjie Levy. Tickets are $99 for students and $599 for everyone else.

Also worth mentioning is AccelerateTO (which is unfortunately already sold out) taking place tomorrow at the ROM. I guess we can always just follow along on Twitter.
